Even though it's only been a couple days since the Droid 3 has been rooted, is there any way to un-root it now? I have to send my phone back because one of the capacitive touch button lights went out, so I was curious if anyone knew what the steps would be needed to un-root it.

Thanks!

lol what system u on? Something to look into... Also factory reset, if you haven't deleted any system apps, if you have, u'd have a brick (i mean you couldn't activate, it'd say touch android but you won't be able to touch the android) after the reset... But they wouldn't detect su, i recommend before the reset, takeeverything off of ur internal memory

I have deleted all of the bloatware I can, and I'm trying to get ADB working to load some of it back on because I deleted blur_yahoo so my contact storage is broken now ( :[ ), would they check if the phone has been rooted this close to the device actually achieving root?

So what are the actual steps to unroot? Like remove SU, superuser.apk, busybox, symlinks...what are the commands that are needed once you defrost and whatnot?

If I loaded all of the system apps back onto the phone and did a factory reset, would it still brick it?

New android user here. Just wanted to say this forum is great and I plan to spend a lot of time here :smile3: I LOVE my new droid 3. I've decided that I'm going to root mine because of all of the advantages, and I was wondering the same thing. If anything were to happen and I need to return it for any reason is there any way I can restore it without verizon knowing that I rooted in the first place? Or is this not possible because of the lack of recovery boot? Thank you to anyone for your input on the topic!

Could someone post the yahoo app needed for contacts? I deleted it the day the D3 got root and didnt notice the FC issues when you viewed a contact.

EDIT: restored yahoo apk but am still getting fc's. :( not sure what to do now

Make sure that you also pushed the blur_yahoo.odex file with ADB and then reboot the phone. Contact storage should be restored after that.

Ok cool, I'll set up ADB when I get home. Thank you

EDIT: Android SDK is running into issues installing on my laptop. I just used root explorer to replace app and odex file. Will that work? Or do i Need ADB
